There are few styles as enduring or versatile as the humble skater dress. Adaptable yet fashionable, graceful yet comfortable to wear, it’s no surprise that the skater dress has become a party staple for fashion-forward girls eager to make a statement.
Designer dresses for girls are an investment, and at David Charles, we know the importance of getting the perfect frock for your little princess. Whether she has a diary packed full of glamorous events, a whole host of parties to attend or a pageant to win, you can’t go wrong with a skater dress. Designed to flatter her figure and bring out her swinging style, every girl needs a designer skater girl party dress this season.
In this post, we’ll break down why the skater girl dress has become such a fashion staple and take a look at three unique ways to wear it.
What Is a Skater Dress?
Although the name may evoke images of skater-girl fashion — baggy jeans, branded t-shirts, skateboards and all — the skater dress is a far cry from the laidback stylings of skater fashion. The name refers to the way the cut of the dress mimics those commonly worn by figure skaters whose dresses flare out and emphasise the body in movement during a performance.
Today, skater dresses come in a variety of different styles and fashions, but all are united by the A-line cut, which is fitted at the top and flares out at the lower part of the dress. You can always spot a skater dress by its fitted bodice, circular fabric skirt and mid-length hem — it’s these cuts that make the skater dress such an enduring style.
Whether your little girl is a twirling toddler or an elegant teen, a skater style party dress is a great investment. Flattering, comfy and oh so charming, in a designer skater dress your little one is sure to inspire and delight.
